Introducing the Hash Rush Pre-Alpha Creative Challenge!

The first Hash Rush competition will be a General Creativity Contest where your task is to create or do something that you feel describes the theme in the best way possible.

The theme of the Hash Rush Pre-Alpha Creative Challenge is:


We’d love to see how you envision Ernacks through Spring, Summer, Autumn (Fall) or Winter.

Some ideas of what you can do are: fan art (drawing, Photoshop, painting…), fan fiction, cosplay, DIY crafting, interactive websites, pixel art, animated gifs, memes, a music or dance set-up… you name it.

Please note, the above are just examples for those of you that are not sure what to do. You are totally free to do something else! No matter what your chosen form of creative expression, we look forward to seeing the result of your creativity!
